The Mug with a Hoop

“‘The world would be better if we could play with our food!’ That's the maxim of Max, the kid entrepreneur and sports fan who created this functional and fanciful basketball Mug With a Hoop™ at the tender age of 8 in his art class. Now you can slam dunk some oyster crackers in your soup or shoot a 3 pointer of mini marshmallows in your cocoa.”


Wood and Marble Cheese Boards

While this gift is a little more pricey than the others, it’s perfect for anyone who loves to cook. You can even monogram these for an extra personal touch.


Tear Free Onion Goggles

Tired of crying while chopping onions? Cry no more! “Your onion cutting doesn't have to be a crying shame. Just the ticket for tear-free chopping, mincing, and slicing, these protective glasses keep irritating onion enzymes out of your eyes so you can focus on your knife skills. The comfortable foam seal also blocks smoke and cooking vapors, while the slightly tinted, fog-free lenses provide maximum clarity.”


Cat Egg Mold and/or Dog Egg Mold

Transform your breakfast experience with these great egg molds.


Sweater Mug Hugger

“Your favorite warm drink will be even cozier dressed in one of these adorable mug sweaters. Made using a traditional jersey knit pattern in either tan or gray, its tiny sleeves clip around your mug for a hug.”
